After the loss of her mother, Chloe Kennedy starts seeing the ghosts that haunted her as a young girl again. Spending time at her grandmother's country estate in the south of England is her chance to get away from her grief and the spirits that haunt her. Until she meets a mysterious stranger…
Alexander Reade is 157 years dead, with secrets darker than the lake surrounding Grange Hall and a lifelike presence that draws Chloe more strongly than any ghost before. But the bond between them awakens the vengeful spirit of Alexander's past love, Isobel. And she will stop at nothing to destroy anyone who threatens to take him from her.
To stop Isobel, Chloe must push her developing abilities to their most dangerous limits, even if it means losing Alex forever… and giving the hungry dead a chance to claim her for their own.
This book is going to be popular with how enjoy a bit of romance and the afterlife. Or if this is your first step into the paranormal. The story line is not over complicated, which makes it easy to emerse your self in the story.
Our leading lady is Chloe. When we first meet Chloe she is dealing with a life shattering event, but as the story progress we learn that she is a strong character with a very special gift, or curse - depending on how you look at it. Cole can see ghost. Her usual approach to dealing with the ghosts is to tell them to go away. That has worked for several years. But not anymore. Things only get worse when she goes to stay with her grandmother in England.
I really liked Chloe, and how she grew and changed throughout the book. It will be interesting to seem how she develops in the second book.
There are 2 main ghost in the story Isobel and Alex. As the story progress we learn that they were lovers but when there secret affair comes out there is no saving them. As a result Isobel has become a twisted ghost bent on destroying anything and anyone who threatens her after life. Alex on the other appears to be the complete opposite. He is also the only person who can control Isobel.
There was some romance, boy likes girl girl kind of likes boy but also likes ghost plus ad a dead ex who is still in love with her dead lover and you have got a interesting love scenario.
The ending was good, and I liked the way things were resolved but yet we were left with a interesting cliff hanger. I really want to read the next book in the series now to find out what is going to happen next.
